Australia Day Green and Gold Lamingtons

Happy Australia Day to all my fellow Australians.  

We like to spend Australia Day having an Aussie Barbie in the backyard and like to end the day by going into the city to see the huge Melbourne fireworks.  This year we'll be having lunch at my mother in laws' and so I decided to make my green and gold lamingtons to bring along.

If you don't know what to make for your own celebrations, these lamingtons are very easy to make and delcious to eat.

6 eggs
150g caster sugar
50g cornflour
75g plain flour, sifted
50g self raising flour, sifted
160g desiccated coconut
1 pkt 85g lime jelly
1 pkt 85g mango jelly

1.  Preheat oven 180degC.  Grease a lamingtom pan (20cmx30cm)
2.  Beat eggs in a bowl with electric mixture for about 10 minutes or until thick and creamy.  Gradually beat in the sugar making sure it's well dissolved in between each addition. Fold in the flours and then spread the mixture into the baking pan
3.  Bake for about 30mins.  Turn cake onto baking paper covered wire rack to cool.
4.  While cake is cooling, make the jellies according to packet instructions.  Place in the fridge to set a little.
5.  When the jelly has set a little, cut the cake into 20 pieces.  Dip into the jelly then cover with the coconut.  Place on wire racks to set.

Bon Appetite,

Ooh, bite-sized, too! Perfect - that way, I can eat dozens. Love the lime and mango jelly flavors!

At first glance I thought they were our native rice cakes covered with coconut. I've never had lamingtons before. Have to try them out soon! Happy Australia Day!!

I love those lamingtons, from the size to the colour. Great stuff.

Oh-ho, my inner 10 year old is clapping in glee right now! I love that you've actually used flavoured jelly rather than just messing around with colouring and icing :D

These are cool! Happy Aussie Day! I've never made lamingtons before but making them colourful is absolutely genius!
